Semrush is one of the most powerful platforms when it comes to calculating overall website traffic. It has become one of the foremost tools for doing digital marketing research. But before we discuss this versatile tool, let us lay some groundwork.
In 1989, a movie called “Field of Dreams“, was released. It is one of the most iconic movies of all time. In the movie, legendary actor Kevin Costner sees a vision one morning while walking through his cornfield. It was a vision of a baseball field. He then hears a voice that says, “if you build it, they will come“.
This mantra has stuck with many since then. This includes many entrepreneurs who operate any kind of online presence. Sadly, many believe that if they build a website, r landing page, and showcase their bold and groundbreaking idea, customers will automatically come. Weeks turn to months. Months turn to years and the beautiful website gets no traffic. Despair finally sets in
Statistics show that the average website gets about 10 visitors a day. Very few cross the 1000 visitor a day mark. Not only do many sites fail to accrue the needed number of visitors, but many website operators also do not know the number of visitors that come to their website, where they are coming from, what their gender is, how long they stayed, which pages interest them the most, the actions they took or even which keywords they typed to get to that website.

One curious fact about Semrush that not many realize is it was actually launched by internet marketers as an internal tool. The company originally meant to use it for their own internal digital marketing efforts. Once they realized just how potent it was, the company launched a public version. Since then it has become the preferred tool for the world’s search engine specialists, digital marketers, and entrepreneurs the world over.
